These are all favorites of mine, and I'm just trying to figure the best way to assign nine sets to them:
Free Standing T Bar Rows
Dumbbell Bent Over Rows
Definitely keep the deadlifts and chin ups. You could do the following:
DL's x 3
chin ups x 3
alternate between the other two...one week do bent over rows x3, and the next week do T bar rows x3
5'6", 145 lbs.
Just what I thought as I read the first post. T bar and bent overs hit the back from a similar angle.Originally Posted by leveque

Why 9 sets?
Squats work better than supplements.
"You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

*Guinness commercial accent* Brilliant!
Why 9? Well, you gotta set a top limit of sets somewhere, I try to avoid doing more than 9 sets per muscle group.
the pull ups are instrumentsl to lat development do 3 setsOriginally Posted by Questor
deadlifts are also instrumental for back development do 4 sets
bent over rows are better for rom than t bars( same exercise anyway) do 3 sets
Add in close grip cable rows 3 sets
between this set up you will annhialate your back and see impressive results!

big 3 total = 1175 lbs of RAW IRON!!!MUAHAHAHAHAHA
I do 3 sets of pullups, 5 sets of deadlifts and 3 of barbell rows.
Occasionally I'll mix it up and go heavy on barbell rows instead of deadlifts, if I feel like my body needs a bit of a break.
all kinds of rows (*especially bent over bb rows)
weighted pullsups (all kinds of grips)
Go now, run along and tell your xerxes he faces free men here, not slaves
If you want to do 9 sets, why not make it 10 and then do 2 working sets for each lift?
or do 4-5 sets...........
too much volume and its not the way to go.....
Rack Pulls 5x5
Bentover Barbell Rows 3x8
and something of your choice
